Design has definitely a big Impact in our planet.
We are at a turning point and everything we do today needs to change.
Crises have always been the most favourable condition to stimulate creativity: an opportunity to rethink the design process and how to inhabit The Planet, that is no longer "fresh".
According to the etymology of the word, crisis means "CHOICE" (krisis in ancient Greek). The scarcity of resources and the urgent environmental concerns, oblige us to rethink our practices and the use of materials.
We are facing an opportunity to build a better future.
Things gotta change and Now!
The Ford Palace will host the 6th edition of the Archi Summit on the 13th, 14th and 15th of July, in the city where the event was born.
This old building used to be a stand and service center for Ford cars and was located, by the 1930's, on Rua do Heroísmo, a few meters from the building where the PIDE (Political Police during the dictatorship of Portugal) would later be installed.
Francesco Moncada and Mafalda Rangel are the curators of the 6th edition of the Archi Summit, a duo of architects by training who see their practice from different perspectives.
They seek to blur the boundaries between interior and exterior, informality and form, authenticity and globality, traditional and critical. After working in many countries, such as Portugal, Spain, Italy, UK, Netherlands, Norway, Dubai and Sweden, they moved to Syracuse, Italy, where they currently establish their practice.
Together they form the Moncada Rangel studio, which defines its architectural practice as an exploration of the spectrum of the possible in multiple territories.
ARCHITECTS OFFICE is the architecture and interior design agency led by Greg Bousquet, one of the founders of Triptyque Architecture, which has consolidated over 21 years a trajectory marked by projects and awards across the globe. The agency based in Brazil and Portugal, in partnership with João Vieira, stands out for the balance between the global and the technical and artistic, organic and mineral, city and nature. The meeting of these different definitions reveals the sum of visions, stories and skills of a multicultural team. Together they solidify a unique culture, evoking timeless creations.Read more
